Tnesdar Erealna, Sept. 7. 18M.
The eaitor of the Colonist is happy. The Canadian Paoifio Railway
terminus is to be moved to Victoria.
We suppose the grant of land made
to the company and all that is ori it,
together with Burrard Inlet, will he
towed down toJ Viotoria by Mr.
Dunsmuir's tugs on an early .day.
.The inhabitants, of cohrse, are not
wanted. They are.not the right
sort of people, are- not. old settlers,
put on no aristcyratic airs, work for
' a living, and neither steal provincial
tends, timber or. uoisemls, nor live
olf! the government. When all this
takes place there will be joy in the
Colonist ollice and Viotoria generally. Our' contemporary in dialling
the announcement of the coming
change has not shown, much discretion, Hb should have remembered , that tliere is auch u thing as
art ■ "injunction;" and it might be
successfully enforced. — Vancouver
Herald. ; '   ; ' ■:•
In view of the probable importation of large quantities of eggs
from the east by the C, P. R., the
following may be of some interest:
Dri' ip.'' F. Wright, in the board of
health Bulletin for the; State of Tennessee, says that soon after it became the practice to transport eggs
in large, quantities and to long distances by railway trbini, it'Vas
found on their arrival that adhesion
had taken place between the membranes of the yolk and those of the
shell,- so that the yolk could not be
j turned oat of the shell unbroken.
On examination by experienced
pathologists', this was found to be
the. result of true infiammation; the
material of the adhesion was found
i to be precisely the same as that-of
the plastic exudation in inflammation 'tA the' lungs or bifrelk ■ It Will
' at first seom absurd to speak of inflammation iri such an unformed
mats as an egg; but this arises from
our forgetting that, structureless and
- unorganized ■ as it seems; the egg
i even ..when fresh laid, is a living' being, arid capable of disease
from external causes. The cause of
this inflammation  is undoubtedly
! the shaking and friction ftojd the
motion of the ears, anil it cannot
but render the egg more or teas' unhealthy, as the products of inflammation can never be as salutary in
fooa as those of healthy growth,
. The, Euphrates Valley Railway
and.the independent telegraph line
through Canuda, between England
, and the East aniJ Auitralnsia,.are
. two j great works absolutely neoes-
Sary to be done,'for the security of
"tht- empire arid telegraphic commu-
i nication with Australia js now dependent on  the line through the
''■Sum 'OMiali VlJioh is KaWfe tobe
out in time of war; while la cable
from British Oolumbia would give
'. a perfectly secure alternative lino.
And  as  to the' Eupliratea Valley
' Railway, the present prime minister aaid in 1883:  "The popularity
| of the scheme and the great attention given it are only some of .the
many signs which ahould! mako her
majesty's government consider that
the subject of connecting the Indian .Ocean and the, Mediterranean
is one of the inost important questions of <he rj^jfs. I^s-gojierfljl features are- thus r summarized by a
sTimis idorrespondent: l.'It would
connect Alexandretta ,with tlm head
of'the Persian1 Gulf, making Kur-
(aane'e , the European port of India,
saving between England and India
. inr distance 1,000 miles,'and reducing the: time for mails from twenty
,'$r) -im Ways. I 4.1 W woUto' 'enable
| England, to maintain |lndia,"tith a
' smaller European garrison, and save
large sums "hr, transportof troops,
which could be Bent from England
to Kurrachee in fourteen days. 3.
It would subject an enemy advana-
- ing towards the north-west frontier
of India ta attack in flank and
rear,,»nd,coml*ined witli: the. projected .brandies to the Bolau,aiid
' Khyber'from the Indus linej would
rferineSr' Iriiia'prncticaliy'secilr6.',4.
It would make the power of Eng
land quickly felt in tho East, and
would enable her military establish-.
#t«i*f jln'***!' -togiv^j suppoft'to
her p6«j«r and prestige ia Eurbpe,
giving England the first strategical
poi(it|pn|in the world, 6.,: "jt would
facilitate English protection of Asia
Minora and! -give Persia aooess to a
port on the Mediterranean. 6. It
Would be easily defensible, both termini'tieing on th* sea/'Boceusible by
the forces of England and India,
the Sank being proteoted by the
Euphrates and .Tigris; while Cyprus
aa a place d'armes would cover the
terminus at Alexandretta.   7. The

The political and military atmosphere continues squally in Europe
and Asia. If thero is any truth at
all in the rumor mentioned in our
despatches this afternoon respecting
the uprising in India, one can easily
comprehend tho reason of Russia's
anxiety to iind a casus belli. A
rebellion in India would tie tlio
hands of Great Britain nud leavo
Russia and Germany to work out
their schemes of Turkish division
according to their own swoot will.
It is probably an idle rumor: we
hope it may be nothing more.
One of the most encouraging signs
of the times is the spirit of liberality manifested by the general public in cases of great calamities. In
the past few years tliis has beeu
manifested on several occasions, and
the late disastrous earthquake has
afforded another opportunity. Subscriptions, we are told, have been
pouring in from all sides, and it is
expected tliere wiil be no lack of
funds to meet every case of real
want. When men who have never
seen' or known each other will voluntarily contribute of their means
for the relief of each other's misfortunes, we conclude that the milk
of human kindness has by no means
become au unknown motive power
in the world. In modern times
men are learning more than ever
the. lesson tliat a man is his brother's keeper.
The telegraphic reports of the
late Belfast riots lead ono to suppose that the Orangemen were
greatly to blame for the part they
took in that disgraceful aflair. The
Belfast News puts a very different
phase on the riots, and, according
to its statement, the other party
was wholly the cause of the disorder. It is most difficult really to
ascertain the facts, but tliere is no
doubt that the primary cause of the
riots, a very peaceable and undemonstrative sabbath-school pic-nic,
afforded no pretext upon which any
reasonable person could commit a
breach of the peace. The managers of the pic-nic wero so anxious
to give no cause of offence that
they consented to go without a band
and without banners. It is not
likely thnt all the blame belongs to
one party, but Orangemen claim
that those who committed outrages
on the Catholics were not Orangemen but common rowdies.
The Gull* Ferry.
* Our friend of tho Nanaimo Free
Press now undertakes to establish
the probability of a railway ferry
between Vancouver ahd Nanaimo,
and expresses the opinion, that this
scheme will be carried out by the
uid of the imperial authorities. The
further the railway lino can be extended, tlie more will it likely benefit the country, but Wo have always
been doubtful of the feasibility or
economy of the gulf ferry. Our
cotemporary says Vancouver Island
holds the key to the position, from
a military point of view, because
the entrance to the gulf could not
be defended against an eneniy. On
the other hand the Colonist maintains that the "gates" can be easily
and perfectly defended by a battery
at Victoria uud Esquimalt, and that
with this protection tbo gulf would
be perfectly safe! These two journals agree on the ferry, because it
would magnify the importance of
the cities they represent, but they
difler widely in their military opinions. If the Colonist's military
theory were correct, it would undoubtedly be the most complete and
consistent. But it Is conspicuously
lame, inasmuch as it involves an
impossibility. There is not a military authority anywhere whb would
endorse it, or even suggest it. But
the. Free Press, while admitting
that the gulf cannot be defended,
proposes still to place the principal
defence on Vnncouver Island, and
connect that with the 0. F. 1". by
means of a ferry. If the gulf cannot be defended, what is to protect
the ferryi Does oui-cotemporary
propose to make it an ironclad ferry,
ana hnve it operated by ironolad
men, and. carry ironclad cars on it,
so that it will be impervious to ihe
cannon qf tlie enemy? If not, according to his own admission the
ferry us n military scheme is a delusion and a snare, while it could
never become a commercial success.
The only safe way to extend the
0. P. It. to Vancouver Island will
be by underground tunnel or by
some kind of bridge that has not
yet been invented, so that wo are
afraid the gulf will continue to
mark the western limit of that road
in spite of all editorial efforts to
carry it beyond.
Joseph Beaudln, M.B., Hull, P.Q.,
writes: Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil commands a large and increasing sale which
it richly merits. I have always found It
exceedingly helpful; I use it In all cases
of rheumatism, as well as fractures and
dislocations. I made use of it myself to
calm the pains of a broken leg with dis.
location of the foot, and in two days I
waa entirely relieved of the pain."

GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1886.
THE AIM OF "GRIP'* is to sot forth, In

moro definitely and more pienslngly than
whole columns of editorial, Jn this pungent, easily appreciable, and nrtlstlu stylo
of presentingn subject, llio wholo situation Is revealed ut. a alalice. The success
at Grip shows how well this fact Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on the passing political events of the country being even
moro eagerly sought after than the chaste
and humorous letterpress of the paper,—
though the latter Js equal to thut of any
similar publication on the continent,
The publishers uf Grip arc making extensive Improvements for IBStl Tho old
cover is to bo discarded, nnd the Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and ho
printed on heavy toned and calendered
pnpor.—every number being so artistically
executed ns to compare favorably with
the best papers on tho continent. Tho

matically arranged; whilo similar Improvements will be made iu tu the lettei-
prcss. A new and liHtidsome dcslitn will

than the counterpart of the "statutory

Moody, as it were. That contemptible
spirit which prompts some people to
detract from any other community but
their own is not new in British Columbia. It is one of the "small

COMMUNICATIONS.
Snip Answered.
Editor Columbian:—-In explanation
to " Snip," I may state for the information of the public that the counoil instructed'the police committee to request
the different tailors to send in tenders
for supplying policemen's uniforms. I
called upon Messrs. Trapp, Walsh and
Newman and requested tlicm to send in
tenders with samples of their goods, etc.
Neither Mr. Trapp nor Mr. Walsh
complied with, the request of the committee. Mr. Newman sent in a tender
for supplying blue serge only. The
council did not consider the material
suitable, and instructed the committee
to communicate with the superintendent
of police, Victoria. On his recommendation the council instructed the committee to procure them accordingly. Hoping the above is a sufficient explanation
to "Snip," I remain youri- respectfully,
U. W. Shiles,
Chairman Police Committee.

The confederation Life.
The annual report pf this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums which
tho shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to tlie resolute
manner in which the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and IS per cent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is the fact that tbe interest
income is sufficient to pay the death
claims—-whicli in a company of the age of
tho Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The assets and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, thero is a surplus of $282,190
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in the assets in the last year
was $260,390. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
tlie Company, viz:—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

White Bronze Monuments. —-White
Bronze iB a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It has
been found to be so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
wbo are making monuments of nll kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has been found tbat
tlie material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically inde-
atruotihlc. White DrouM* being, non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
wliich throws off a verdigris. Tho menu*
ments are cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts the surface, but does not adhere to it. A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze is indistructlble by
the elements; It cannot bs dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film is so thin as tn be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can tako place.— Boston Journal qf Commerce. Chas. J. Robson,- New West*

New York, Sept. 6.— Despatches
from all directions announce that subscriptions for the relief of the sufferers
at Charleston are pouring in at a rate
unexpected and almost unprecedented.
No doubt the amount of funds contributed will bo amply sufficient for
"every want.
The colonel relates how when quito
exhausted from the want of food he
lay quite helplessly on the floor of the
hut and watched with curious eyes the
hunter eating thc only remaining
pieces of sealskin, not from selfishness,
but because he knew tho lives of the
whole party depended on his keeping
up his strength. Tlio colonel and his
party will winter with these peoplo in
tho "Kinipatoo" country till sleighing
commences. He will then go to the
North Hudson Bay country into the
"Mick" country. The party will
then bo prepared in spring to push on
to Baffin's Bay and reach Pond Inlet

Thoro the
'i&   For the North Pole.
CftKrS-' HEW EXPEDITION OF ADVENTURE.
From the Winnipeg Sun.
Col (-jildor, en .route for the North
Pole1, 'firmed here this morning bringing a wave from the much-sought for
region with him. He is accompanied
by Mr. Griffith, his companion. He
tftpocfcs to catch' a Hudson Bay Co.'s
boat going from Norway House up the
Nelson River to Fort Nelson. This is
the manner in which ho hopes to reach
Hudson Bay. His future plans aro
detailed below. He looks thoroughly
in eartiest, and talks like a man with a
great weight on his mind. Mr. Bonnet, of the New York Herald, and Mr.
Erastus Wiman, have provided tho explorer! with ample funds, and many of
the leading firms in America have liberally contributed the necessary supplies. All arrangements for the jour-
ney are, thoroughly prepared, except a
few stores which will be obtained in
Winnipeg. They Will go by steumer
from Winnipeg to the head of Lake
(Winnipeg, and thence. to Norway
: Howe, near'the source of the Kelson
River. They Will go down the Nelson
Rive* withitne assistance of the Hudson Bay people to Fort York, which
will occupy ten days. They will there
meet Esquimaux and ho hopes some of
the people ho knew before, especially
' one.of flu former guides and hunters
•Who was with him during an anxious
poriod. -Their supplies could not be
obtained* and for days th6*y were ac- J
tually starving before the ship arrived.i
NATIVES  ARE FAMILIAtt
with the coast as far as Capo Sabine,
where Groely's starvation camp was
found. Arrangements will be made
to liave a provision depot tliere next
year. They will probably stay there
during the -winter and then push on to
Fort Conger, in Lady Franklin's Bay,
which was Lieutenant Groely's most
northern station, and is situated in
latitude 81° 45\ They will then make
a dash for the Pole in sledges, travelling with the natives all tho time, i
The colonel has had fivo years' experience in tho Arctic regions of North
America and Nortii Asia, and is perfectly familiar with the language and
customs of the natives. Thc colonol
will, carefully survey the country with
respeotto the proposed short lino from
Manitoba to England via Hudson Bay.
Colonel Gildor is not a crank. Rather
is he a man possessed with that consuming restlessness whicli throe centuries drove bold spirits into all the
unknown nooks of tho world, seeking
new lands or eldorado. He is a newspaper man, backed in his present, as
in former ventures, by tho iprostigo
and treasure of tho New York Herald,
For that paper he accompanied two
arctic expeditions—that of Schwatka,
and the "Jeannette" relief party led
by Rogers. In the interests of tlie
same paper ho described tho ravages of
the cholera in France, and tho ruin
made by the earthquakes in Spain.
With Lieutenant Schwatka he spent
three years in
THE   ARCTIC! R*feuIONB
and in that, timo made himself thoroughly familiar with the peculiar difficulties of northern exploration. He
also learned the Eskimo language thoroughly, and succeeded in establishing
entirely friendly relations i with tlie
peoplo of the region. On these things
the success of his present attempt will
javgoly depend. HiB plan is to perforin
tlie various stages of the latter part of
his journey with the assistance of the
various E&quimo tribes. Theso are
not expected to turn tq and help out
* of pure love. Colonel Gilder carries
with him a storo of the articles which
lio knows are, in those ice-bound countries, most coveted, viz., arms and ammunition, and various implements
useful in thc chase or household. In
return for these, he feels sure the, natives will convey him to tho much
sought-after crown of the earth. He
carries next to no provisions. Extraordinary as it appeai-s, it is a wcll-
authbnweated fact that tho Arctic seas
teem with animal life. With the aid
of his native allies, tho explorer ex-
peota   to   support   his party on giuno
until the game limit is roached. Boyond that he will depend upon tho
stores cached by his predecessors. At
Fort Conger, the northernmost point
reached by whito men, less than 400
miles from tlie pole, there lie, safely
hidden at presont, provisions for
twenty-five meii for a year. Supplies,
therefore, give tlw? gallant explorer
little concern. Nor has he much more
' uneasiness about his prospects of securing natives to bring him to his journey's end, for, in all probability, some
of thom have unwittingly been thero.
At any rate, as near to the pole as
civilized mon' have gone, they havo
found traces of Esquiino in tho round
circles of stones, used for securing the
lowor ends of tho tents carried about
on hunting expeditions. To tlio technically unlearned the sehome looks
feasible enough, and it has received
the endorsement of high authorities,
including Sergeant Brainerd, of the
Grteely expedition, who is himself
shortly to return to the frozen country
on discovery bent. If Col. Gilder does
reach the polo he is determined that
his story of success shall be bolioved.
It is probably to this ond that ho has
associated with Min Mr. W. R. Griffith, a graduate of Cornell University,
who has hitherto dono most of his
travelling in tho tropical regions of j
Africa, but is, nevertheless, cftger to
brave the other climatic extreme.
Colonel Gilder is wise in Ins generation, he
TAKES NO LIQUOR WITH HIM
beyond the verge of civilization; not
becauso he is a teototaller, but" so that
his indigenous northorn friends may
not be tempted'to possess themiolvos
of the stock, and thereby lose their
heads. Colonel Gilder himself does
uot propose to pass any length of time
in gathering any scientific data. Frnm
his experience he believes it possible
for him to plant his foot right-ovev tho
spot where the pole should stick out.
His expedition, wliich in going and returning will occupy throe yoars, is undertaken solely to demonstrate tlie
truth of his belief. Once ho gets
thore, others will not bo long iu fid-
lowing. He is the more confident of
success because his project avoids the
mistakes mado by other sockets. • It
was upon their own resources that liis
predecessors relied; he moans to de-
pond >,npou tho skill of the natives,
in the'management of whom ho expects to find scope for all his tact and
energy, leaving natural obstacles to
be overcome by. tlieir perseverance,
stimulated by tho hope of a largo
reward.
